Crowds surged at the open pools on Saturday and Sunday as temperatures soared into the 90s.

The Aquatic Center at Flushing Meadows Corona Park (GMAP) is home to a gigantic, 25M by 50M swimming pool, the first indoor public pool built in the city for more than 40 years. While it was built as part of a failed bid by the city to host the Olympics, the pool has certainly become a boon for New Yorkers trying to escape the heat. The pool is in the new Flushing Meadows Corona Park Natatorium and Ice Rink building. When it opens later this year, it will be the biggest recreational complex ever built in a city park.
